Facial Recognition ​​Can Tell If You’re Gay

Psychologist Michal Kosinski says artificial intelligence can tell your sexuality and political views just by looking at your face.

Kosinski published his paper in which he showed how facial recognition algorithms could tell the difference between pictures of gay and straight people. As well as sexuality, he believes this algorithm could be used to detect emotions, a persons IQ and even a predisposition to commit certain crimes. Michal Kosinski has also used algorithms to distinguish between the faces of Republicans and Democrats, in an unpublished experiment he says was successful.

Great, so now they can arrest me in the future for things I might do. I bet it ends up being tied to your credit score somehow.

In another News article I saw on this it stated that “An algorithm deduced the sexuality of people on a dating site with up to 91% accuracy.” It was probably 100%, that other 9% was lying haha.

Here is a video of Dr. Michal Kosinski giving a talk called “The End of Privacy” in 2017.
